Cazz & Liam’s Comic Book Geekery Wedding

“Everyone said for me to wear white would be the shocking thing” the bride, Cazz, told me. “My dream was to look like a cupcake. A big pink cupcake. It had to be pink, black and with polka dots. My dress was purchased off eBay for $40. It was a used costume from Buddy Holly the musical! One of my lovely maids of honour altered it for me and added my dream large black bow.”

I think that Cazz’s dress¬†might have helped to set the whole theme for her awesome wedding to Liam – a big pink cupcake of a wedding! Cazz wore shoes with cupcakes (and skulls!) on them and as well as a slightly more traditional tiered cake, which was gift, they had…you guessed it…cupcakes!

Star & Kane’s Adorable Floral Engagement

I’m a sucker for adorable florals. Who isn’t in fact? The¬†concept¬†of the shoot was formed by¬†Thaoski, who told me all about Star & Kane’s gorgeous photo session came about. “The first time I met Star was at a Christmas party last year. It was the first time I had seen her with Kane and I remember thinking she had this old fashioned vintage sweetness about her. Kane is actually a guitar player in a rock band so together they just formed a ridiculously gorgeous ‘rock-vintage’ couple.”

“The theme of their shoot was ‘vintage sweetness’. Their wardrobe was full of vintage pieces but Kane bought Star a sewing machine for Christmas so she wanted to sew something for the shoot (very sweet!). She bought and old vintage dress and transformed it into the lovely green skirt you see in the picture.”

“The old bikes are also owned by them and we added the vintage camera (Canon 7) with the 1965 “dream lens” to the shoot because of Star’s love for photography. The gorgeous sparkly accessories were provided by the lovely Madame Moi Boutique and outfits were also co-ordinated by Madame Moi.”

Everyone deserves to have fabulous wedding photography. Fact. After the wedding day is done, it’s the one thing that’s there for the rest of your lives, to remind you of your special day. However not everyone can afford a professional which is why I am seriously excited that Australian photographer Xanthe Roxburgh would like to offer one lucky Rock n Roll Bride reader Free Wedding Photography and a free engagement or day after shoot!

And the best bit? Even though Xanthe is based Down Under, she is willing to travel world wide to shoot the winning wedding! All we just ask is that transportation and lodging costs are covered if it’s more than 100km outside of Newcastle, Australia.

“I‚Äôm a lover of life, taker of photographs, chronicler of the world,” Xanthe says. “An inveterate people-watcher, I love catching the emotions and expressions of my subjects; everyone has a story to tell, and it’s often written on their face. ¬†My style is quirky and funky with a liberal dash of romance thrown in.”

“I am inspired daily by the beauty of the world and the people around me, and I am always honoured by the trust people show in me by inviting me into their lives to document their weddings and families.”
